God and Philosophy

“My induction into godless philosophy did wonders for my faith. It cleared the garden of religion from the covering of weeds that was disfiguring the lawn and hiding the flowers. Nor did I expect otherwise. If God created the world, then His existence must be compatible with the world. If He created human intelligence, His existence must not be an insult to the intelligence. If the greatest gift He gave humanity was freedom, then religion could not establish itself by coercion. If He created law-governed order, then He could not have asked us to depend on events incompatible with that order.”
